Northern Tiger Resources Announces $1 Million Yukon Exploration Program

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 14, 2009) - Northern Tiger Resources Inc. ("Northern Tiger" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NTR) is pleased to announce it is planning a $1 million exploration program in the summer of 2009 to follow up on its 2008 high-grade gold discovery at Sonora Gulch in the central Yukon's Dawson Range (Hole SG-08-27 intercepted 26.6 metres grading 4.96 g/t gold, 11.9 g/t silver and 0.23% copper - see News Release dated October 28, 2008).

The planned exploration program will include up to 7 diamond drill holes (1,400 metres), as well as additional surface work including mapping, prospecting, and geochemical and geophysical surveys. Priority objectives include:

1. Testing the extent of the mineralization in the Nightmusic Zone by drilling five step-out holes to the west of Hole SG-08-27;

2. Drill testing an additional geochemical/geophysical target approximately 300 metres to the east of the previous drilling in the Nightmusic Zone (2 holes);

3. Delineating additional targets at Sonora Gulch through surface exploration; and

4. Exploring for Minto-style deposits through a more detailed mapping, prospecting and sampling program to evaluate two of the five properties obtained from Northern Tiger's exploration alliance partner Minto Explorations Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Capstone Mining Corp.

Northern Tiger is working closely with its principal suppliers to plan and execute an efficient exploration program. New cost savings initiatives include hauling much of the program's heavy freight in on a winter road and making increased use of ATV's to limit helicopter time. In addition, the Company has made a number of applications for funding under the Yukon Government's Yukon Mining Incentive Program.

"We are looking forward to getting back in the field to follow up on our discovery of last year," says Greg Hayes, President of Northern Tiger Resources. "Demonstrating that there is continuity to the high-grade mineralization encountered in Hole SG-08-27 should be an important catalyst for the Company. I would also like to thank our suppliers, including Kluane Drilling Ltd., Heli Dynamics Ltd. and All-Terrane Mineral Exploration Services, for their cooperation and assistance in putting together a cost-effective 2009 exploration program."

Northern Tiger Resources Inc. is a new Canadian-based resource exploration company focused on the rapidly developing Dawson Range gold-copper mining district in the Central Yukon, Canada. Through its exploration alliance with Capstone Mining Corp.'s wholly owned subsidiary, Minto Explorations Ltd., Northern Tiger benefits from a wide range of experience, knowledge and capabilities from early exploration to mine production.
